  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Climate Resilience Learn More about Silvopasture
    Had you heard of the term "silvopasture" before now? After learning more about it, what do you think is the biggest advantage of silvopasture?

    Silvopasture is a wonderful idea to return to..as back in the day.. but not sure how it would accommodate what our world currently eats.. I’ll read more up on it..

    This was fun and exciting to learn and teach others.
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    Eating more meat increases more risk of certain cancers and cardiovascular illness. 
    The climate impact is roughly equivalent to all the driving and flying of EVERY car, truck and plane in the world.
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Smaller Portions
    While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come from eating/serving smaller portions?
